Hands of the 250 members working the olive groves
Kilos of olives produced per year on average
Hectares of land
The Cooperativa piccoli produttori e coltivatori d’Ogliastra is located in Lanusei, on the Eastern coast of Sardinia. It was created in 1995 thanks to the efforts of a group of producers who wanted to showcase their high quality oil to a wider range of customers.
This Cooperative today counts 250 members who take their harvest to the mill where it is processed in ways that preserve both values and methods of traditional production. Our production process ensures the members deliver the olives to the mill in crates within the 24 hours after harvest, so that they retain unaltered characteristics. The deadline for the yearly oil production is roughly the middle of January.
The Cooperativa is managed by a Board elected by the members every 3 years. The Board then chooses the President, Vice- President and Secretary.
These are the names of the Presidents since 1995:
SIG. ARESU MARIO (03/03/1995 - 07/11/2005)
